SAN ANTONIO -- A fire at WOAI-TV leaves the news team working from a makeshift set on the parking lot in front of the building. Despite it all, Sports Director Don Harris decided to focus on others who have suffered more because of fire damage.
Harris said his wife prompted him to contact Family Service Association. Putting their minds together, he and Xochitl Cortez Davis decided to set up a donation drive.
Harris explained how his wife thought the victims of an apartment complex fire yesterday needed more attention.
The fire at the Fox Run Apartments in the 10000 block of Broadway destroyed several units leaving dozens of people homeless and in temporary shelter, thanks to the Red Cross.
"That's why I love working with News 4. Even while you are dealing with a fire, you are thinking of others,'' the Vice President of Communications and Marketing for Family Service.
Davis gave a list of much needed items to help victims of that fire and others that have happened recently.
The list includes: bath towels, wash cloths, toothbrushes, tooth paste, hair care products, brushes, combs, bedding, sleeping bags, air mattresses of any size, baby wipes, diapers, sipping cups, and eating utensils.
The donations can be dropped off at the Family Service office at 702 San Pedro and the number to call for more information is 210-299-2400.
A manager, at Fox Run Apartments, said the complex is also collecting donations in the club house for fire victims.
